• Mavericks to let DeAndre Liggins go?
    The Mavericks are not expected to pick up DeAndre Liggins' option for next season.

    Advice: The Mavericks claimed Liggins off waivers during the final week of the season and were expected to take a "long look" at him this summer, but they are now prepared to move in another direction. The 29-year-old defensive specialist has career averages of 2.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.6 steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 am
  • Dallas focused on developing young core
    ESPN's Marc Stein said that the Mavericks are focused on "cementing and developing its young core."

    Advice: Stein adds that this includes Harrison Barnes, Nerlens Noel, Dennis Smith Jr. and Seth Curry. The Mavericks were originally expected to be major players in free agency and were heavily linked to Jrue Holiday, but now their offseason priority is to re-sign Noel as a restricted free agent and develop their young talent. As for Barnes, expect him to reprise his role as a go-to option on offense for the Mavericks in 2017-18, making him a safe pick in the middle rounds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:37 am
  • Gerald Henderson to become a free agent?
    76ers reporter Tom Moore said there's a "good chance" the team will decline Gerald Henderson's option for next season.

    Advice: The 76ers are now expected to bring over draft-and-stash prospect Furkan Korkmaz next season and they already have Robert Covington, Timothe Luwawu and Nik Stauskas, so it makes sense for them to move on from Henderson since he's owed a non-guaranteed $9 million in 2017-18. The 29-year-old veteran averaged 9.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 23.2 minutes per game last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:38 am
  • Suns think Warren can play with Jackson
    The Suns are convinced they can play T.J. Warren next to Josh Jackson.

    Advice: This isn't surprising to hear and coach Earl Watson said he thinks Jackson can play all five positions. Tucker has also played shooting guard, small forward and power forward with the Suns, so it makes sense on his end. However, it may be tough to start both with Devin Booker, Eric Bledsoe, Marquese Chriss and whoever they start at center as four of their starting five. It could make sense to bring Warren off the bench, which would hurt his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:07 pm
  • The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo
    The Kings are releasing Arron Afflalo.

    Advice: The Kings added some really nice perimeter depth on Thursday with De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Frank Mason. Plus, they could also be adding Bogdan Bogdanovic for next year, so they may have several new pieces to their backcourt compared to the start of the 2016-17 season. As for Afflalo, he is still 31 and he may be looking to join a contender next year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:53 pm

  • Ben Simmons to have minute restrictions
    76ers coach Brett Brown said it would be "very ambitious" for Ben Simmons to not have minute restrictions next season.

    Advice: While he's on track for a full recovery, Simmons will likely be monitored similar to the way Joel Embiid was during his rookie season. That means he will likely sit out one game of back-to-back sets as well. There's a lot to like about Simmons with his pass-first style, but the restrictions are going to be annoying for fantasy owners. 76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said he thinks Simmons and Markelle Fultz will form a "dynamic backcourt," all but confirming that both players will be running the offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:06 am
  • Kelly Oubre (PRP) back on the court already
    Kelly Oubre is already back on the court after undergoing a PRP injection in his right knee earlier this month.

    Advice: Just about three weeks after the procedure, Oubre being cleared to do on-court work is a positive development. Although he won't play in summer league, Oubre should be all systems go by the time training camp rolls around in a few months. He could play a big role for Washington if Otto Porter, who is expected to receive a lucrative payday as a restricted free agent, decides to sign elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:18 pm
  • Pacers, Celts talks 'stalled' on Paul George
    Talks between the Celtics and Pacers about Paul George have "stalled," according to The Vertical.

    Advice: Celtics writer Gary Washburn previously confirmed talks between the teams, but noted that the " sides are not close." It's unclear what the sticking point is, but Boston has been reluctant in the past to part with any of their first-round picks from the Nets. The deal isn't dead, but this is a far cry from the "serious talks" and "significant momentum" reported an hour ago. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:10 pm
  • Bulls still interested in re-signing Mirotic
    The Bulls remain interested in re-signing Nikola Mirotic.

    Advice: Well, their interest probably dropped on Thursday with their selection of Lauri Markkanen at No. 7. Mirotic is also 26 years old, so he's not quite as young as the rest of this rebuilding team. Mirotic was also in coach Fred Hoiberg's doghouse for his defense, so the Bulls drafting another stretch four with even more size is worrisome. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:54 pm
  • Woj: Celts in 'serious' talks for Paul George
    The Pacers and Celtics are "engaged in serious talks" about a Paul George trade, according to Adrian Wojnarowski, but they are "still apart."

    Advice: Here we go. Boston has a heap of young talent and draft picks they can use to lure George away from the Pacers, but keep in mind this isn't a done deal -- it had "gained significant momentum," but may have since cooled off. George isn't expected to promise that he'll re-sign with a new team, given his interest in signing with L.A. next summer, so there's obvious risk involved. Stay tuned, as we should know more very soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:56 pm
  • Report: Bulls deal Jimmy for LaVine, Dunn, #7
    The Bulls will trade Jimmy Butler and the No. 16 pick to the Wolves for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and the No. 7 pick, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.

    Advice: It's a blockbuster night. Coach Tom Thibodeau helped make Jimmy the player that he is and now he'll get him as the 2017 All-Star version. Butler will undoubtedly see huge minutes and he'll get to play next to the best offensive big man he's seen in Karl-Anthony Towns. Butler was able to sustain a high usage rate next to Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo, so he should still be in the upper 20s with elite scoring and a little bit of everything. The Wolves had better make the playoffs this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:46 pm
  • MIN 'seriously engaged' in Jimmy Butler talks
    The Bulls and Timberwolves are "seriously engaged" in trade talks centered around Jimmy Butler, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and draft picks are reportedly on the table, but Minnesota doesn't want to part with Andrew Wiggins in any deal. The Celtics have reportedly dropped out of talks involving Butler, at least for now, and the Wolves appear to have a real shot at him. We'll know for sure within the next few hours. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:48 pm
  • ESPN: Rockets still pursuing Paul George
    The Rockets "remain in trade pursuit" of Paul George, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: Based on the earlier report of the Blazers not having enough ammo, it'll be really tough for the Rockets to get a deal together for George. Unless the Rockets can pull some strings to get other deals going, this seems like it'll be tough to get done for general manager Daryl Morey. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:41 pm
  • Report: Celtics not in talks for Jimmy Butler
    The Celtics are currently not included among teams looking to trade for Jimmy Butler, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

    Advice: This report says the Celtics haven't been included for a while. To be clear, a lot of things can change here, but for now it seems like the Celtics are going after Kristaps Porzingis or perhaps someone else. The Bulls are considering a trade with a team owning a high pick as they look to go after De'Aaron Fox or Josh Jackson. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:09 pm
  • Report: Suns shop Jared Dudley to Pelicans?
    The Suns have reportedly spoken to the Pelicans about a trade involving Jared Dudley, likely in exchange for second-round picks.

    Advice: New Orleans holds the No. 40 pick, in addition to the No. 52 pick they acquired from the Wizards for Tim Frazier. Dudley would give the Pelicans an alternative to guys like Solomon Hill, Quincy Pondexter and Dante Cunningham, but it's obviously not a given that this deal will come to fruition. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:36 pm

  • Nuggets also talking with Bulls on Butler
    The Nuggets have spoken with the Bulls about a trade for Jimmy Butler, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

    Advice: This report adds that Nikola Jokic is not going to be included. Perhaps no team has deeper well of young assets than the Nuggets with guys like Jamal Murray, Juancho Hernangomez and Malik Beasley all showing promise in their rookie seasons. They also have fantasy favorite Gary Harris, who has been an outstanding two-way player for three years. We'll have more Jimmy rumors on the way. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:34 pm
  • ESPN: Cavs in trade talks for Danny Green
    The Cavs and Spurs have been in trade talks involving Danny Green, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

    Advice: The report adds the Spurs' asking price has been high, but the Cavs don't even have a GM right now. The Cavs really don't have much to offer here, so this isn't surprising to see these teams aren't close. Green could be on the move this summer as the Spurs look to open up some cap space to potentially bring in a star like Chris Paul. The Suns have also been mentioned as a possible inclusion in a three-team trade, according to Sam Amico. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:13 pm
  • Report: POR not close on Paul George offers
    The Blazers' recent offer for Paul George "doesn't move the needle" for the Pacers, according to Jason Quick of CSNNW.

    Advice: This isn't too surprising because the Pacers are looking for a high pick. While the Blazers do have three first-round picks, their earliest pick is only at 15. If you exclude C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard, there just isn't enough to entice the Pacers to match some of the other offers from the teams with lottery picks. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:20 pm
  • Woj: Wolves still after PG-13 or Jimmy Butler
    The Wolves continue to show interest in landing Paul George or Jimmy Butler, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: While the world shifts its focus to Kristaps Porzingis, don't forget about these two All-Star wings. The Wolves seem like they're very willing to deal their No. 7 pick for a wing of some kind. George is by far the most likely All-Star to be traded and there is a picture floating around on the web of a moving van in front of his house. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:17 pm
  • Knicks asking for a ton in KP trade
    The Knicks are ask the Celtics for the No. 3 pick, Brooklyn's pick next year, Jaylen Brown and Jae Crowder for Kristaps Porzingis, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

    Advice: This version of the deal wouldn't include Joakim Noah's contract, per the report. This sure is a lot to ask from the Celtics, so it's no surprise they're not willing to meet this asking price. Jaylen Brown also has a close relationship with former Knicks president Isiah Thomas. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:45 am
  • Wolves to include No. 7 pick for Butler?
    According to ESPN's Ian Begley, the Wolves are considering using their No. 7 pick in a package to pry Jimmy Butler away from Chicago.

    Advice: The Wolves have been interested in Butler for over a year, but according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, this offer wouldn't be good enough -- Johnson said the Wolves would need to include a talented player(s) and a future first rounder as well. Along with Kristaps Porzingis and Paul George, Butler will be one of the most popular names floating around at tonight's draft. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:26 am
  • ESPN: PHX & MIN could be in on Jimmy Butler
    According to ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell on Sportscenter, the Suns and Wolves are "teams to focus on" as potential trade partners for Jimmy Butler.

    Advice: Friedell mentioned that the Celtics are also still in the mix, which is fairly obvious at this point. With regards to the Wolves and Suns, there's the connection between coach Tom Thibodeau and Butler while the Suns have a slew of young players from the last two drafts along with the No. 4 pick this year. Butler probably won't be dealt before the draft, but this is going to be a huge story to watch today. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:50 am
  • Swaggy knows LA going in different direction
    Nick Young's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Young declined his player option because he "knows the Lakers are going in a direction."

    Advice: "They were clear with that at the end of the season and the way things went," Bartelstein said. "He felt like this is an opportunity to choose his own destiny and pick the best spot where he can get a chance to contribute at a high level." In other words, Swaggy P is probably not going back to the Lakers. He also may be looking for a place where he can get some minutes. He probably won't be going to the Nets, though. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:41 am
  • Spurs make Jonathon Simmons a restricted FA
    The Spurs have extended a $1.6 million qualifying offer to make Jonathon Simmons a restricted free agent.

    Advice: Simmons was quietly effective last season, especially while filling in for injured Kawhi Leonard in the playoffs -- in four games vs. the Warriors, he averaged 15.3 points, 1.3 triples, 2.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 27.8 minutes. Danny Green and LaMarcus Aldridge have been mentioned in recent trade rumors, and Pau Gasol is expected to re-negotiate a deal with the Spurs, so the team's willingness to match an offer-sheet for Simmons hinges on a variety of factors. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 pm
  • Phil Jackson wants Carmelo 'somewhere else'
    During a pre-draft interview on Tuesday, Phil Jackson said that it "might be time for [Carmelo Anthony] to try to go somewhere else."

    Advice: "We've expressed the fact that we've done a lot of things to put teams together that can win and we haven't been successful," Jackson said. " [Carmelo has] come back and said he'd just as soon stay. We're trying to start growing from the youth aspect of it." Melo has a no-trade clause that puts him in the driver's seat, and the future Hall-of-Famer's trade value is undermined by Jackson's obvious desire to part ways. There's no lack of drama in New York these days. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Nick Young declines player option, now a FA
    Nick Young has declined his $5.6 million player option in favor of free agency.

    Advice: Young is 32 years old and it's no surprise to see him chase more long-term money, rather than playing out his deal and testing the market at age 33. He had a minor bounce-back season last year, even showing commitment on the defensive end, but no matter where he lands he won't offer fantasy owners more than a handful of points and 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Spurs open to trading Danny Green?
    The Spurs are "open to trading" Danny Green, according to Jabari Young of the San Antonio Express-News.

    Advice: Cap space is the name of the game here. The Spurs could be trying to open up some money to go after guys like Chris Paul or Kyle Lowry, so that explains this news -- the Rockets are in the same boat. This report does add nothing is close yet, though. Despite some inconsistency, Green should be considered as an asset by almost any team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:56 pm
  • Update: Cavs not telling Butler to stay away
    According to sources of Sam Amico, there is "zero truth" to reports stating that Cavs players are telling Jimmy Butler to stay away from Cleveland.

    Advice: An earlier report implied that Cleveland's Big 3 could be headed towards an early breakup after the unexpected ouster of David Griffin, but it's always good to be skeptical of reports quoting anonymous sources from opposing teams, particularly when there's incentive for one team to spin the facts. In other words, we're not buying the rumor that the Cavs are telling Butler to stay away from Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:16 am
  • Cavs players warning Butler about Cleveland?
    Some players within the Cavs organization are reportedly warning Jimmy Butler to stay away from what has suddenly become a volatile situation in Cleveland.

    Advice: According to sources of Joe Cowley of the Sun Times, Kyrie Irving has reached out to some of his former Team USA teammates letting them know that he might be willing to push for a trade in wake of the David Griffin firing, hinting that Cleveland's big three could be headed for an early breakup. However, it's worth pointing out that this article is based on quotes from anonymous sources without any direct evidence from management on either side of the equation, so take it with a grain of salt. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:02 am
  • Memphis will offer Tony Allen vet's minimum
    The Grizzlies aren't willing to offer Tony Allen more than the veteran's minimum this summer, according to sources of Memphis beat reporter Ronald Tillery.

    Advice: Allen is 35 years old and beginning to lose some of his luster as a defensive stalwart, so it wouldn't make much sense to give him a massive deal. However, he might be able to secure an offer for slightly more than the minimum outside of Memphis. Either way, there won't be many leagues where The Grindfather will be worthy of a draft pick next season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:52 am
  • Belinelli and Miles Plumlee traded to Atlanta
    The Hornets have traded Marco Belinelli and Miles Plumlee to the Hawks.

    Advice: The Hornets will also send the 41st pick in exchange for the 31st pick and Dwight Howard. Belinelli is 31 and has just one year left on his deal for $6.6 million. He averaged 10.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.4 triples in 24.0 minutes per game for the Hornets last season, but it's hard to see him having a significant role in Atlanta unless they move on from restricted free agent Tim Hardaway Jr. this summer. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:21 pm
  • Cavs 'seriously interested' in Paul George
    ESPN's Marc Stein said that the Cavaliers remain "seriously interested" in Paul George and Jimmy Butler.

    Advice: Butler is hoping to stay in Chicago and George told the Pacers he's leaving as a free agent next summer, so George is likely more attainable. The Cavaliers probably don't have the assets to make a George deal work, so a third team would have to be involved. Meanwhile, the Lakers have reportedly offered the 27th and 28th overall picks and Indiana's choice of either Julius Randle or Jordan Clarkson, so it sounds like a George trade could go down this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:43 pm
  • ESPN: Jimmy Butler hopes to stay with Bulls
    According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Jimmy Butler "hopes to stay with the Bulls" even though the Cavaliers remain "seriously interested."

    Advice: Cleveland engaged the Bulls on a possible Butler trade before parting ways with GM David Griffin, but Stein adds that Butler would be "reluctant" to commit his long-term future to Cleveland. Butler "remains intent" on leading the Bulls back to Eastern Conference prominence, so unlike Indiana's situation with Paul George, Chicago still has a lot of leverage in trade talks for any team that tries to pry Butler away from Chicago. On a side note, Dwyane Wade must be relieved to hear this -- he exercised his player option for 2017-18 season on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:34 pm
  • Report: CHI 'actively shopping' Jimmy Butler
    The Bulls are reportedly "actively shopping" Jimmy Butler.

    Advice: The Bulls apparently want to jump start their rebuild, and the Cavs and Celtics appear to be the frontrunners to land Butler's services should a deal go through. Chicago management reportedly want to free head coach Fred Hoiberg of Butler, as they haven't really meshed, which is a rather strange direction to go considering Butler's skill set. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, but if Butler does get dealt, that would likely also result in Dwyane Wade opting out of his deal. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:41 pm
  • Report: HOU will offer Harden an extension
    The Rockets reportedly "plan" to offer James Harden a four-year extension this offseason worth roughly $168 million.

    Advice: Harden accepted an extension with the club last summer that put him under contract through 2019, although if he waits another year before committing to another extension with Houston, he would be able to sign a five-year deal somewhere in the ballpark of $217 million. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:15 pm
  • Report: LAL-IND discussing Paul George deal
    The Lakers and Pacers have reportedly engaged in preliminary talks regarding a Paul George deal.

    Advice: Reports around the league indicate that the Lakers are unwilling to part ways with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NBA draft for PG-13, but they are reportedly willing to offer a package that would include the likes of Jordan Clarkson, Julius Randle and the No. 28 pick. The Lakers will likely be coming in with low-ball offers given that George has made it known that his desire would be to sign with Los Angeles as an unrestricted free agent in 2018, but there is reportedly some fear amongst the Laker execs that his attitude towards Los Angeles could shift if he's traded to a winning team this summer. In addition to the Lakers, the Cavs, Wizards, Rockets and Clippers have reached out to the Pacers regarding a Paul George deal. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:03 pm
  • Dario Saric working on his 3-point shot
    Dario Saric said he'll work to improve his 3-point shot this offseason.

    Advice: Saric shot 31.1 percent from beyond the arc during his rookie year, somewhat below the league average, so that's certainly an aspect of his game that could use improvement. It'll be interesting to see what his role looks like next year with a healthy Ben Simmons on the floor, but it could be tough for him to replicate his post-break success given that Simmons, Joel Embiid and likely Markelle Fultz will be the dominant aspects of most offensive possessions. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:50 am
  • Jabari Parker (ACL tear) making progress
    Jabari Parker (left knee) was spotted running and going through agility drills on Tuesday.

    Advice: While it's nice to see that Parker is progressing in his recovery from a left ACL tear, it needs to be said that he's not even expecting to get back onto the court until February at the earliest. That would give him a maximum of around 40-50 games played during his 2017-18 campaign, and he'll very likely be brought along slowly once he is cleared to return to the court. In other words, Parker won't be worth much more than a late-round flier on draft day, and his owners will need to be patient. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:27 am
  • McCaw, Jones will play at summer league
    Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Patrick McCaw and Damian Jones will suit up for their summer league squad in Las Vegas.

    Advice: Myers also added that he "thinks" Kevon Looney will participate, but that will likely depend on where he's at with the hip issue. McCaw could step into a much larger role with the Warriors next season if they aren't able to retain Andre Iguodala during free agency, although with Kevin Durant set to sign at a discount in order to keep Iggy on the squad, an Iguodala departure seems unlikely. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:38 pm
  • Report: Cavs shopping Shumpert and Frye
    The Cavs are reportedly exploring the trade market for Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye.

    Advice: The Cavs are reportedly currently engaged with teams around the league to bring in either Paul George or Jimmy Butler, but should a trade like that go through, Kevin Love would almost assuredly need to be included. The current rumors going around the league would hint that we could see a blockbuster deal go down on draft night. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Report: WAS will make a play for Paul George
    The Wizards will reportedly try and put together a package to trade for Paul George.

    Advice: It's tough to see this sort of deal coming to fruition, as Washington has zero interest in trading away Bradley Beal or John Wall. That pretty much leaves Otto Porter as their most attractive trade chip, but given that he's a restricted free agent, Porter would need to consent to a sign-and-trade which would result in him leaving millions of dollars on the table. At the moment, Cleveland and Boston seem like the only realistic potential landing spots for PG-13. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:41 pm
  • Report: Durant will decline player option
    Kevin Durant will reportedly decline his player option for the 2017-18 season in order to renegotiate his contract with the Warriors to make it easier for them to re-sign Andre Iguodala this summer.

    Advice: Durant is reportedly willing to take roughly a $4 million discount in order to let the dynasty in Golden State continue, and this move will help the Dubs invoke their Bird rights on an Iguodala deal that will be competitive with other offers he'll receive on the open market. It's currently believed that Durant will sign another two-year deal with a player option on Year-2, and it'll be interesting to see if Stephen Curry is also willing to sign at a discount in order to keep this team together. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:25 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari hints he could leave Denver
    Free agent forward Danilo Gallinari said that the Nuggets aren't his "first choice" this summer.

    Advice: "Nuggets are not my first choice but they are exactly at the same level of the other teams," Gallinari said. "Denver’s advantage is that they can offer me a five-year contract while other franchises can offer me a four-year deal. Nuggets are at the same level of the others." That's not what the Nuggets will want to hear, but the ball is still in their court because they can offer him the most money. If Gallo moves on this summer, Juancho Hernangomez could be a sneaky late-round flier in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:37 am
  • Pacers moving fast in Paul George talks?
    The Pacers are reportedly angling for two first-round picks and a starting-caliber player in any trade talks for Paul George.

    Advice: In case you missed it, George recently informed the Pacers that he intends to leave as an unrestricted free agent next summer. That may have forced their hand, and ESPN's Zach Lowe reports that the "sense from teams talking to [Indiana]" is that they "intend to move fast" on a deal for the star forward. George would reportedly prefer to play in L.A., but he also wants to compete for a championship, and the Cavaliers have been cited as a potential trade partner. It's a fascinating story to monitor in the lead-up to draft night. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:40 pm
  • Paul George intends to leave Indiana in 2018
    Paul George has reportedly informed the Pacers that he intends to leave the franchise as an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

    Advice: George also let the Pacers know that ideally, he'd like to go to the Lakers, and while he hasn't formally requested a trade, Pacers' GM Kevin Pritchard has reportedly already begun engaging with teams around the league on a potential deal; the Cavaliers have already made inquiries. The Lakers might not have the assets to be able to pry away PG-13 from Indiana, and there's less incentive for them to do so if they could get him for nothing as a free agent, but with word out that he won't re-sign with Indiana and he'd like to go to Los Angeles it'll be that much more risky for a team to unload assets now for what could turn out to be just a one-year rental. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:33 pm
  • KD says it'll be better next year
    In an interview during the Warriors championship parade, Kevin Durant said "it's going to be even better next year."

    Advice: He sure loved winning a title and KD certainly has enough from his off-court money. General manager Bob Myers talked a lot about a meeting in the Hamptons to get KD to join up, and it sure seems like the Warriors have this thing ready to go for a long time. KD is actually quite nice, as it turns out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:28 pm
